Conference to focus on cashing in on cow chips
In the near future, farmers may have more to sell than just milk, corn and soybeans.

A conference to be held in Stevens Point in January will look at ways small and medium farms can use methane digesters to generate not only electricity, but revenue.
"Quite simply, the conference focus is how to make money from manure," said Timm Johnson, executive director of the Wisconsin Agricultural Stewardship Initiative.
